What is the game about?
The player assumes the role of a young god of Norse mythology. He must prove that he is worthy of acceptance in Asgard. On the side of Loki you have to face different tasks and help the destination of different heroes on the jumps.
Sometimes, as a divine Titan, the player wanders through the Nordic empire and manipulates the environment with his divine powers. He can turn animals into chimeras, which are then available to the hero as a companion. Then he slips back into the body of this hero and can prove himself in the battle.
